Normal Great South Western Explorer
gswexplorer In 1945 Volkswagen was then known as KdF-Stadt. It's factory was producing military versions of the Beetle, known as the Type 82. It was heavily bombed and captured by the Americans who handed it over to the British. They eventually started producing VW Beetles for the British Army to use as light transport vehicles. Some of the army personnel were allowed to take back their Beetles to the UK when they returned home. In a bid to kick start the motor industry in Germany, the British offered the Beetle design and factory to car manufacturers around the world for free. They all declined, including Ford, who thought the offer wasn't worth bothering with. The British Army therefore set about renaming KdF-Stadt as Volkswagen and by 1948 control had been handed over to the West German Government. Popularity and sales of the car soared globally in the coming years and despite being universally known as the Beetle, or Bug, Volkswagen always referred to it as the Type 1.

gswexplorer Today I went to a Volkswagen show in a meadow next to Berkeley Castle, a few miles up the road from me, in Gloucestershire.
Berkeley Castle dates back to the 11th century and was built to protect the Severn Estuary and the Bristol to Gloucester Road from the Welsh. The castle has been owned by the Berkeley family since the 12th century, which makes it the oldest building to be continually occupied by the same family in the UK.
